Verizon's Website Is Slammed As Pre-orders For The iPhone Start

Verizon iPhone Error

Today is the first day you can pre-order an iPhone on Verizon.Since I need a new phone, I logged on at 5 A.M. to put in my order. For the last three hours I’ve been greeted with this screen that reads, “Sorry, an error has occured.”

I’m not alone, either. A look at Twitter reveals others are having the same problem.

Verizon said it was ready for the crush of users that would come with the iPhone.

I guess they were talking about their network, and not their website.
